I think turkey is a lean meat anyway so should be okay.

yes as circes said, don't be fooled into thinking any turkey or chicken mince is extra lean, because it won't be. You need to look at the fat content or falling that make sure the mince comes from breast meat only or states extra lean clearly on the packet. Because many of the cheaper non lean varieties, can contain all parts of the carcass, including the fatty bits.

Oh wow - did not know about the <5% so thats a really good tip thanks! I take it that is <5% fat not saturated fat?
The mince i get is from Asda - im going to have a look now!!!

I have just looked and the turkey mince I get is 8g fat /2g saturated fat per 100g - does this mean I should no longer get this?

Don't worry - tis stuff we all need to know!

I only buy extra lean minced beef and then chicken breasts, salmon, prawns and other fish depending on whats on offer. Wanted something different hence the lamb mince question!

Does this mean that all meat under 5g is free?
Just lookin on asda website-there is tinned ham under 5 so would that be free? X
No it only applies for mince. If the mince is less than 5% fat, then you know it is extra lean, unfortunately it doesnt work like that for other items.

Lean cuts of fresh meat with no fat/skin and no added sauces, dressings, oil etc are free. For all other types of meat not listed in the free foods list. You need to use syns online or the syns calculator.
